About the Illegal Eagles
The latest all-star line-up of the show, produced as ever by Phil Aldridge, features Tony Kiley (formerly from 80’s sensation The Blow Monkeys) on drums, Bafta Award winner Christian Phillips on vocals and guitars, Trevor Newnham (Dr Hook) vocals and bass, Greg Webb vocals and guitars, Mike Baker vocals and guitars and Garreth Hicklin vocals and guitars.
Garreth, Greg, Trevor, Mike and Christian effortlessly capture the vocal style and delivery of Henley, Walsh, Fry, Schmidt and Meisner and are masters of their respective instruments.
The power-house rhythm section of Kiley and Newnham has added a dimension that is sensitive to the subtle needs of the Eagles’ songs and kicks hard where necessary.
Highlights of the Illegal Eagles’ 21-year career have included tours of Europe, Asia, Russia and the Caribbean, whilst in Great Britain they have performed at all the major concert halls including The Royal Albert Hall and The Cadogan Hall in London, St David’s Hall Cardiff, The Royal Concert Hall in Glasgow and The Waterfront Hall in Belfast.
All the classics are featured during the 150-minute show - Hotel California, The Last Resort, Life in the Fast Lane, Tequila Sunrise, One of These Nights, Lyin’ Eyes, New Kid in Town, Take it to the Limit, Rocky Mountain Way, Witchy Woman, Heartache Tonight and songs from "The Long Road out of Eden"
